The Belarusian delegation has taken part in the China Guangzhou International Innovation Fair and the 14th Guangzhou Convention of Overseas Chinese Scholars in Science and Technology at the invitation of the Union of International Scientific and Technological Co-operation of the Chinese Province of Guangdong and CIS countries.
Representatives of the Belarusian National Technical University, AGAT SYSTEM JSC and Gomel’s State University have taken part in the fair and forum, as well as attending seminars on sci-tech co-operation and talks with partners.
Belarus has presented its scientific projects at a separate stand, within that of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine; the stand has proven popular with local and central Chinese authorities. The new party leaders, alongside the city administration of Guangzhou, are keen to focus on innovative development, with Guangzhou becoming a major innovative centre for the country, alongside Beijing, Nanjing and Shenzhen. Collaboration with CIS member states’ research institutions will be a vital element in implementing this strategy.
